What is the pattern name of my sugar bowl Weimar, Germany

Donna Hagen

I think it looks Art Deco which would be form the 30's. Just another piece of china and what not from Grandma's estate. Not sure if I should use it a mosaic or list on ebay.

    I have no clue, but it sure is pretty. Pls don't break it up for mosaics.

    Without knowing the value of this piece I would not list it on E-Bay.I tried to find dishes under that stamped named but sorry I did not find anything. Good Luck

    You could go to I antique online (one word). You have to join but somebody there could probably tell you more about it. So, the link is "Iantiqueonline.com".

    Not art deco since the mark is post WWII. Found this info online: Next to take over were the Carstens brothers who renamed the company Blankenhainer Porzellanfabrik C & E Carstens. They produced porcelain until 1945. The company became nationalized after WWII, when it was renamed again to VEB Porzellanwerk "Weimar Porezellan", a name that held until 1990.

    If I do not know the value, I never break it. But it is your grandmother's, that alone would make me keep it.

    Here is info I found on PM&M "Porcelain Marks & More" for your mark. "This mark was used from around 1905 onwards, the shield of the Weimar dukes. Minor changes were made over time. Another version of the shield mark, here with large 'GERMANY.' That addition was not always used..." To me, this looks most like your mark, four horizontal lines (first used in 1905 had five horizontal lines). www.porcelainmarksandmore.com/germany. They also have a contact page - just be certain to make your first subject line entry PMM, or it will be discarded. As far as keeping something, just ask yourself if looking at it brings you joy. If it doesn't, then let it move on to someone else who will love it. Not everything old is valuable, although this may be a rare find on this side of the world; and if it was your grandmother's and you didn't see it in her house, perhaps it will only remind you that it was just something you saved from the trash bin. Keep your other memories of grandma. Although it doesn't look like art deco to me (the color is pretty soft), I think it is adorable. Maybe live with it in your kitchen. See how many of your visitors just have to peek into this cute sugar bowl....and the fun of finding a special treat of Hershey's Kisses or Reese's Pieces! The experts at PM&M will most likely be able to assist you. Good luck!!

      Thank you so much for your help and kind words. I like it but I most likely will list it on eBay. Somethings are just to pretty to toss or break for a mosaic . I have been running some of the finer pieces 30 days on eBay. I am not making a fortune but it has completed some people's china sets and has funded my craft room with more supplies. I would love to find some rare amazing piece. Maybe ill find a diamond in the ruff yet.
